Here’s an acoustic lesson teaching Go Flex by Post Malone. This is a bit of a tricky one, with regard to the chords you’ll need… but I’ll show you some tips with the capo to simplify things. Enjoy!

Print-friendly Song Sheet
This is one of my few lessons that doesn't have a printable song sheet / PDF available. If you'd like to request I make one, let me know... it's always great to hear which lessons have the most interest.

Capo to make things easier?
If you want, you can dodge the B-flat and F chords by using a capo (which lets you play along with the album version of this song). I won’t break it down in detail here, but the cheat sheet to do such is this:
I III IV V vi ---------------------- No Capo F A Bb C Dm Capo 1 E G# A B C#m Capo 3 D F# G A Bm Capo 5 C E F G Am
Note, you’ll need to use barre chords one way or another, for the most part.
Intro / verse / pre-chorus:
Bb . . . F . . . C . . . Dm . . . (repeat)
Chorus / post-chorus:
A . Bb . F . C . (repeat)
Use all down strums, ideally accenting every other strum. Throw in a down-up just before every chord change:
DOWN down DOWN down DOWN down DOWN down up DOWN down DOWN down DOWN down DOWN down up DOWN down DOWN down DOWN down DOWN down up etc
Lighting stog after stog, choke on the smoke They tell me to quit, don't listen what I'm told Help me forget that this world is so cold I don't even know what I'm chasin' no more Tell me what I wantjust keep searchin' on It's never enough, cup after cup, blunt after blunt I wouldn't give one if I could find a fuck, ha, ha, ha In the cut and I put that on my momma And my bitch called talkin' 'bout some drama I swear there ain't no time for women on the come up It's either the pussy or the commas Man I just wanna go flex Gold on my teeth and on my neck And I'm stone cold with the flex With my squad and I'm smokin' up a check (repeat) Push the gas, get a motherfuckin' nose bleed She ain't never met a youngin' do it like me She got a man but says she really like me She doin' things to excite me She sending all her friends snaps of my new tracks 'Cause all these hoes know whats about to come next I hit my plug up, got the paper connect I drop a couple bands I just wanna go [ chorus x 1 ] Knowing all of this It just don’t make a difference I’m just talking shit to the ones that will listen I come with the heat man, I swear I’m never missing And I’m still the same and I swear I’m never switching (repeat) [ chorus x 2 ]
Hope that helps!
